So Much For Green Pastures

Here we are in Southern Colorado, it's late Spring, we've had lots of good snow runoff and plenty of water for irrigation, but guess what? Both my critters are now on dry lot, and they are not very happy about it. Because they are comfortably into their senior years, they seem to be more prone to hoof problems, particularly laminitis. So here they are in their pens, looking a little forlorn and wondering, "Where's the grass?"

My small garden is growing.....our grass is really growing.....and I'm needing to find someone now to cut and bale our grass for hay!. This valley produces good grass hay, and there are a few ranchers here that make a fairly good living producing quality, weed-free feed for the Four Corners area.

  1. For us it is the rainy season. Farmers are trying to get in the first crop. Most of our animals are on pasture!
    What a difference between your area and mine!
